The Marshfield Fire Department says there is “no accidental explanation” how a fire got started in the old Marshfield High School yesterday evening. Chief Kevin Robinson says they first got a 9-1-1 call about smoke coming out of the building just after 7:30. Firefighters found a fire in the first floor library and heavy smoke on the second floor above the administrative offices.
The fire was knocked down by 7:50, and the Chief says the State Fire Marshall’s Office will be working with Marshfield Police to investigate. Marshfield Police tweeted that anyone caught trespassing in the old high school will be subject to arrest.
